A recent newspaper headline was “Garrett: Offseason moves collaborative”. The Cowboy coach, of course, is trying to wipe out the public perception which happens to be the truth that every Dallas Cowboy coach since Jimmy Johnson has been a pansy.
The word pansy being used to indicate an individual who is willing to collect a paycheck while being amenable to being ordered around by Jerry Jones. Switzer, Wade Phillips, and Jason Garrett have fit into that pansy role perfectly for the team owner who wants more limelight than his own players and coaches.
After the Cowboys choked again in the “playoff” game against Washington, Jerry Jones stated that somebody would be calling the plays other than Jason Garrett. Jerry Jones’ megalomania knows no bounds. After effectively firing a coach that won two straight super bowls (Jimmy Johnson) , the Cowboys have never fielded a team that really had any kind of chance to go all the way.
I really believe that Jerry Jones does not come close to getting that he is the root of all the Cowboys’ problems. Jones reminds one of president/despot/tyrant that has absolutely no checks on the power that he wields. I wish there was a way to have him removed as team owner and general manager. The man is poison to the organization and destroys their chemistry. Everybody looking in from the outside realizes that.
The feeling that many Cowboy fans have about Jerry Jones is not unlike the sentiments many Americans have about our current entitlement president. Will it ever end?
